This is a US Model 1918 style winter uniform worn by the US Army during World War I. I believe this 1918 tunic was made in New York, but there are no makers labels or inspector tags anywhere. It features the four pocket design with epaulets. The five button coat has the subdued US eagle buttons, with six smaller buttons of the same type for the pockets and epaulets. The coat size buttons are back marked CITY BUTTON CO NEW YORK. The smaller buttons are all back marked "AM BUTTON CO NEWARK NJ". The coat is fully lined and has one inner pocket. There are no stamped or hand written names anywhere inside the tunic. The left sleeve has a theater made 82nd Division patch sewn on. A red discharge stripe is sewn on below the 82nd patch. Above the left sleeve trim are two gold chevrons of bullion, indicating one year of overseas service. The left collar disc is the crossed rifles of the Infantry, with the letter E below the rifles. The right disc is the standard US. Pinned above the left breast pocket is one ribbon, the WWI Victory medal with two stars. There is one small hole in the tunic caused by insects. The trousers are from the American Garment Company of Indianapolis, Indiana. The Quarter Master Depot tag is sewn on the back side of the right front pocket, and shows the contract date of Aug, 1917. The trousers are in fair condition, with three small stains, several small holes caused by insects and the bottom of both legs cut off just below the fourth eyelet from the top. This is a nice example of a US Model 1918 uniform worn by a member of the 82nd "All American" Division. It displays well on a mannequin and will look great in any war room!
